  • RIP Little Petco Egg

    The eggs were first spotted in Petco in late June, and the other one hatched on September 3rd. This egg was smaller, and when candled a few months ago, showed a very tiny baby inside. Today the egg was slimy, mold covered, smelled bad, and was brown with black spots. It would be at least 180 days old. I just cut it open, and the baby inside was so rotted that itís impossible to tell what might have been wrong, just some pink flesh and a black spot.

    Rest in peace, little baby. Iím sorry I never got to meet you.

    I was wondering what happened to the other egg, to bad it didn't have the opportunity at life like it's sibling has. RIP little one.

      Thanks, Hannibal. I used a dissecting kit and was really careful, but it was long gone and stuck to the side of the egg. I'd been wiping mold off the egg for some time and hoping it had a chance.

        Sad that one didn't make it, but I think it's fantastic that the sib hatched out! Thanks for looking after those Petco geckos!

          I'm enjoying them, even though checking out the unhatched egg was a real bummer.
